What’s The Bema Seat Judgment?

Q. Since all Raptured Christians shall appear before the Bema Judgment Seat of Christ to give an account of things done during their lifetimes here, good or bad, I was wondering if you would expound more fully on a Scriptural passage found in 1st Corinthians, Chapter 3, Verse 15 (KJV).

Guarding The Throne Of God?

Q. Your article on evil was terrific.  It’s such a joy to learn from someone who thinks Biblically and is conversant with Scripture.  But one thing you said got me curious.  You talk about Lucifer’s original purpose being to guard the throne of God.  What did it need guarding from?  Couldn’t God guard it Himself?

Both Holy And Righteous?

Q. When I read Rev. 22:11 I understand what the Lord means when He speaks of the unrighteous,  but what is the difference between the righteous and the holy?   The Lord imparted His righteousness to me when  I  believed  and received his holy sacrifice for my sins.  Since I am then robed in  the righteousness of my Lord Jesus Christ, am I  not also Holy?  I desire to be both. ( I want to love what Jesus loves and hate
what Jesus hates. ) I am trusting the Holy Spirit to form the character of Jesus in me.Thank you for sharing your godly knowledge and wisdom.

Understanding John 20:22-23

Q. What does  John 20:22-23 mean? “If you forgive men’s sins they are forgiven them and if you hold them bound they are held bound?” The Catholic Church takes this to validate the confessional and forgiveness of sins by the priest. Your insight is appreciated.

Making Covenants

Q. Wondering what your thoughts are on the subject of Christians making covenants? An increasing number of bible studies and christian groups are asking participants to sign covenants agreeing to whatever is required by the course, or to certain obligations within the group. I feel uncomfortable being asked to do so. Wondering if you have addressed this subject in your writings? Thanks!

Changing The times And The Law

Q. I had a thought the other day, in Daniel 7, verse 25 specifically, it talks about the Anti Christ thinking to change the times and the law.   Is this saying he is trying to change the calendar? and international laws?  I find this interesting since all this hype about the mayan calendar ending in 2012, and it appears that we are heading to a one world government, just something I have been thinking about, but I want to clarify what Daniel is saying exactly. Thanks so much!

Describing The 2nd Coming

Q. Could you please explain Matt. 24:28?  I was once taught that the carcasses were the spiritually dead (non-born again believers) that the vultures come after. However, knowing now that Mt. 24 has nothing to do with the Church and everything to do with the Jews, I was wondering if perhaps it is referring to Jehovah coming to the aid of Israel during the tribulation.

Who Was Revelation Meant For?

Q. I was just reading your article on “No one knows the Day or the Hour”. It is very good. After many years of things that were viewed in the traditional sense that didn’t make sense, I finally realized that the Book of Matt. was all Jewish. Why would Jesus talk about things that were going to be revealed by Paul, anyway? The Church is no where in view in the Gospels.

Old Earth Young Civilization

Q. I was channel-surfing last night, and began to watch ( a well known christian TV personality). All these years, he’s said that the earth is young, and that the evolutionists had it all wrong. Now, he says that earth is thirteen billion years old, and that there was another creation, of man. It is my belief that (he) has gone around the bend. What are your thoughts?

Has The 2nd Coming Already Happened?

Q. Thank you for answering the many questions that you receive.  Your insight and knowledge helps many in their understanding of the Bible and living the Christian life with a world view.  One of the scripture texts which the Preterists use in arguing for the second coming in some form having taken place before the destruction of the Jerusalem in 70 AD is found in Matthew 16:28, Mark 9:1 and Luke 9:27.
